Philadelphia’s popular winter traditions at Dilworth Park have returned for the 2020 holiday and winter seasons. The premiere exhibits that are returning include Wintergarden on the Greenfield Lawn, the Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink, Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market, and Deck the Hall Holiday Lights. To ensure the safety of all guests and staff, each attraction is strictly adhering to CDC guidelines including a mandatory mask wearing policy, socially distanced seating, layouts to increase open air areas, and increased contactless purchasing opportunities. The winter attractions have opened in careful stages starting with the Wintergarden on the Greenfield Lawn. Below is a list of the various Dilworth Park winter exhibits, their scheduled run times, and more information regarding each attraction.


October 30th – February 28th

The Wintergarden is an open-air wonderland of lights, which is free and open for all to enjoy. Its unique setting of topiaries and rustic decor facilitates relaxing strolls and sets the perfect backdrop for breathe-taking photo-ops. For guests over the age of 21, adult beverages are available including warm mulled wine at the Chaddsford Winery Kiosk and seasonal brews from Conshohocken Brewing Company.

Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink

November 6th – February 28th

With winter-inspired foliage and dangling lights, The Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink and the neighboring Rothman Orthopaedics Cabin are the perfect winter attractions for ushering in the joyous season.
